A little more work on the interior.

Reworked the tunnel and added the accent piece for the rear tunnel.

I really didn't like the "Euro" look of the Wagon Rod dash, but the shape was something I thought I could work with. I made sides for the center section of the dash that flows back into a console out of .030 sheet and covered the top with .010. I'll laminate that with a second layer later.

In place with the seats, everything fits well.

I still can't believe how perfect a fit the dash is. I still have to cap the ends of the dash, but that will have to wait until the door panels are figured out.

Thanks guys.

A little more work on the interior, swapped out the Wagon Rod seats for the Mustang ones. Made a steering column with turn signal and tilt controls for the PE wheel.

Thanks. Your '41 Plymouth is looking good.

The Wagon Rod does come with some neat stuff, airide suspension with tubular A arms up front and a 4 link in the back, LS5 (I think ) engine, some cool looking modern seats, it's definitely a good donor kit.

Not from what I've seen of your work. If you have the patience and skill to do those wire wheels, you could easily tackle a job like this.

Now go cut that Woody up! B)

Bryan, I've got a few feelers out on info for a painting technique. If that falls through, I was thinking of trying these. Look about 2/3 down the page for the Woody.

Looking great! I like the look of this body after little cutting, just like someone said on the first page, it looks like Morris Wagon or something. And that's not a bad thing! I always enjoy watching your work, and I will be watching this one for sure.

Bought the Wagon Rod while back too, nice Air Suspension and Four Links, good looking body too. But that's all, luckily I managed to sell the engine, wheels and modern interior parts. I'm building Gasser from it right now. B)

I wanted an unusual engine for this build and decided to go with an Offy. I found an old Monogram Midget on ebay for a couple of bucks, and to be safe I got one of the Revell Midget kits as i didn't have much faith in the Monogram version. With my love for dirt racing, I just couldn't ruin the Revell kit by stealing the engine, so I decided to see what I could do with the mess from the Monogram kit.

It took a little work, but I think I've got something decent looking. I found pics of a model of the Offy online, I hope I interpreted them correctly. I've got a few more pieces to make yet. I mated the Offy to the 94 Mustang tranny.

Making the header. For now it will be just the primary tubes. I'll wait on the collector for when the body and frame are further along. The exhaust is going to exit out the front fender.

Now to find some stacks for the injectors.

The driveshaft has been shortened and we're getting closer to a rolling chassis.

A little more detailing on the engine. The plumbing is well on its way, both radiator lines are run along with one from the block to what I'm guessing is the water pump.

I'd like to add an alternator but I have no idea where it would go or what would drive it, a gear or belt?
